3. Multitool

Multitools differ from each other in the scope of application and, because of this, in the set of tools.

With the help of smart scales, you can find out the amount of water and muscles in the body, the proportion of visceral fat and bone mass, and the metabolic rate.

When choosing a sports bag, you should give preference to a roomy model with several compartments and pockets so that everything you need fits exactly: a change of clothes, shoes, a towel, shower accessories and a bottle of water.
